Custom Below the Hook Lifting Devices
Custom Lifting Beams
Tri-State Rigging Equipment specializes in providing custom designed and fabricated hoist and crane lifting beams. Lifting beams excel at lifting lighter loads, at shorter spans, and are extremely well suited for low headroom environments. Lifting beams are used to keep your lifting slings below the beam at a 90° angle to the horizon.
Custom Spreader Beams
Tri-State Rigging Equipment specializes in providing custom designed and fabricated spreader bars for lifting and rigging. Spreader beams excel at lifting extra wide and heavy-duty loads. Spreader beams are used to widen the available lifting points on rigged loads to keep lifting slings at a 90° angle relative to the horizon.
Custom Coil Lifters
Tri-State Rigging Equipment specializes in providing custom designed and fabricated C hooks and coil lifters to fit any rigging application. Coil handling equipment and coil lifting devices, commonly referred to as C hooks and coil lifters, are below the hook lifting devices that make lifting and handling large and small coils of any material extremely easy and efficient.
Custom Pallet Lifters
Hoist mounted pallet lifters turn your hoist into an aerial mounted forklift. Pallet lifters allow you to safely and securely lift and handle pallets just like if you were using a forklift. Available in capacities ranging from 1500 lbs. to 30 tons, below the hook pallet lifters can fit almost any pallet lifting application.
Custom Lifting Tongs
Below the hook lifting tongs, sometimes referred to as scissor grab lifting clamps, utilize a scissor mechanism to grip a wide range of industrial loads. Tri-State Rigging Equipment specializes in providing custom designed and fabricated below the hook lifting tongs and tong grabs to fit any lifting application.
Custom Sheet Lifters
Sheet lifters are used to lift a variety of sheet, plate and bundled materials. Available in capacities up to 20 tons, sheet, plate and bundle lifters are extremely versatile and well suited for light duty, as well as heavy and severe duty rigging and lifting applications.
Custom Rotating Axis Grabs
Rotating axis grabs are the perfect material handling solution for lifting applications in which the load must be lifted and rotated around its horizontal axis. Rotating axis grabs grip the outside of the load from opposite sides and they allow the load to be rotated manually, or by an air or electric motor.
Custom Drum Tilters
Drum lifters are specially designed to securely grip and safely lift drums throughout lifting, moving, and discharging operations. Drum lifters and tilters are the perfect material handling solution for lifting applications where drums must be lifted, and their contents poured out or dumped.
Custom Ladle Hooks and Beams
Ladle beams equipped with ladle hooks or J hooks are most commonly used to safely transport molten metal. They can also be used to transport rolls of material such as paper rolls. Tri-State Rigging Equipment specializes in providing custom designed ladle beams and ladle hooks.
Custom Forklift Attachments
Forklift lifting attachments allow you to convert a forklift into a single hook crane, single or double hook lifting beam, or a forklift jib crane. In addition, forklifts can be equipped with a Porta-Platform that converts a forklift into a manlift. Tri-State Rigging Equipment specializes in providing custom designed and fabricated forklift lifting attachments and accessories.
Custom Chain Slings
Chain lifting slings are made from alloy steel and can be custom configured to fit any lifting or rigging application. Chain slings are easily modified and repaired offering industry leading versatility. Lifting chain slings are available with multiple-leg bridle assemblies and can be used in vertical, choker, or basket hitches. Chain slings can also be configured to have adjustable leg lengths.
Custom Wire Rope Slings
Wire rope rigging slings consist of strands of individual steel wires laid around a fiber or steel IWRC (Independent Wire Rope Core). Wire rope can be manufactured in a variety of patterns and constructions, allowing it to be used in different working conditions and applications.
Adjustable Four-Point Spreader Bar with Pneumatic Center of Gravity Shift
This custom 4-point lifting beam is quickly adjustable using pull pins for the span and lifting points. The spreader bar has a push button controlled pneumatically actuated center of gravity shift allowing operators to keep the lifting bar level. The bar features an ergonomic floating handle, one inch adjustment points with visual pin location indicators, and integrated safety circuit preventing operators from using the center of gravity shift while the load is in midair.
Below the hook devices are used to lift loads that cannot be safely secured by crane hooks and lifting slings alone. This means that loads which require a below the hook lifting device are often irregular in their size, shape, and distribution of weight. Sometimes a standard “off the shelf” below the hook device can get the job done but often a below the hook lifting device must be completely custom engineered from the ground up. Some of the custom below the hook lifting devices we offer are:
- Lifting Beams
- Spreader Beams
- Coil Lifters
- Pallet Lifters
- Lifting Tongs
- Sheet Lifters
- Rotating Axis Grabs
- Drum Tilters
- Ladle Hooks and Beams
- Forklift Attachments
- Industrial Saw Horses
